Learning more about the Ygrene program.
Rapid Construction has prepared the following video to help you understand the Ygrene program and how it can help you upgrade your home in the most cost effective manner.

What is PACE?

Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) enables low-cost, long-term financing for a variety of energy efficiency, renewable energy, water conservation, storm protection and seismic improvements. PACE financing is repaid as a special assessment/tax on the property’s regular property tax bill and is processed the same way as other local public benefit assessments (sidewalks, sewers) have been for decades.

Depending on where you live, PACE financing can be used for improvements on commercial, residential, nonprofit, light industrial and agricultural properties. PACE is lowering utility bills for homeowners, creating jobs and helping local governments achieve important environmental goals.

What is Ygrene?

Ygrene’s award-winning PACE program provides 100 percent, no money down PACE financing to help property owners make cost-effective energy efficiency, renewable energy, water conservation, safety and storm protection improvements to residential, multifamily, commercial and agricultural buildings. Eligibility is based on equity and your ability to pay, among other factors. No minimum FICO score is required. Payments can be spread out up to 30 years in some states, and your first annual payment may be deferred for up to one year or longer, subject to underwriting guidelines, approvals and date of funding.

What type of improvements are eligible for financing?

Ygrene can be used to pay for hundreds of PACE-eligible energy efficiency and renewable energy upgrades, including associated installation costs. In certain states, electric vehicle charging stations, water conservation improvements, storm/wind protection and seismic retrofits are also eligible for financing.

Some of the most commonly financed improvements are qualified solar systems, energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, windows, doors, roofing, insulation and ducts, pool pumps, water heaters, drought tolerant landscaping and water-saving plumbing repairs.

How do I qualify?

It’s easy. First, check your eligibility. If your property is in one of our service areas, you can apply online and get prequalified in minutes. Eligibility is based on equity and your ability to pay, among other factors—not your FICO score. Call Rapid Construction at 954-228-2300 for immediate help.

How are payments made?

Payments are made through a special tax/assessment added to your property tax bill and repaid with terms of up to 30 years in some states, depending on the location of the property and type of improvement. The special tax/assessment (your payment) is secured by a continuing lien on your property. If you sell your property, payments may transfer to the new owner. Keep in mind that property taxes are legally transferable when you sell or refinance your property, however, some mortgage lenders may require full repayment (payoff) of any remaining special tax/assessment upon sale or refinance. If you’re considering selling or refinancing anytime soon, check with your lender first.

Is this a government program?

No. While PACE programs are enabled by state legislation and must be approved by local governments, Ygrene is not a government program.
